Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I would like to know what "acting as a community care taker", as stated by the police officer constitues and if that means she was able to enter my open garage while I was sitting in my parked car.
Lost my connection. Did you get my question?
Thank you so much for your time and research. Do you think if we can get that issue highlighted (that the intrusion should never have happened in the first place), that all of the rest of the arrest and citations and blood draw and fingerprinting, etc. would be thrown out?
What do you think the chances are of using this method of defense? I supposedly was almost 3 times over the limit, but parked in my garage without an incident. Do you think I need an "expert" attorney to understand all the references you have given me or are most OUI attorney's going to be familiar or at least be able to reference those in a knowledgeable manner?
Sorry to be so inquisitive, but I have been working on this for almost a year, and this is the most information I have ever gotten in such a short period of time. You are the only one that has provided me with useful and important information. I thank you for that. This is so important to me I cannot tell you. I have been so stressed out and I literally have lost my family over this.
When she entered the garage, the car was not running. The keys were in my hand. There is a very limited space between the garage wall and my exit door of the car (less than an arm's length), which makes it quite difficult to get out of the vehicle in any given situation, even on a good day. Plus I carry a very heavy work bag and purse, which is even more cumbersome trying to exit a vehicle when police are yelling at you to get out of the car.
What are you doing August 1st? Want to come to Milwaukee? I'll buy you dinner!! Name your price.
You added something to your last statement that makes me think that I was not aware of all the facts. Did the police follow the car home? Did they observe it being driven on the road?
I'll be sailing on the Chesapeake Bay in early August.
"The driver, Cheryl was located a short time later while parked in the open garage at her residence".
"Within a short time period, I (police) arrived in the area in an attempt to locate that vehicle. I drove thru the alley behind P Ave and observed the garage door to be open. I observed the Honda and the drivers side door was open and a leg sticking out of the door. Acting as a "community care taker" I entered the open garage to check the welfare of the driver".
So, I guess my answer to you would be no, they did not follow the car home or observe it being driven on the road.
Thanks so much. I am sorry for taking up so much of your time. I hope you enjoy your time on Chesapeake.

If you believe, God Bless...if not, Happy Trails!
I will indeed. I have faith and you just made it much better. Thanks again, this was well worth the time and effort on my part.
They are cops on steroids!
If your plans in August change.....!! Could sure use someone as knowledgable and considerate as you. These clowns around here just don't even want to try.
Good night, I am spent.
Ok, clicked on the link...thank you, by the way, and got a big ugly Danger sign to browse the link. "Threats" it said because of ncdd.
Are there alot of names on there? Perhaps if you could just give me the ones in Southeast Milwaukee or even Milwaukee county? If not, I can play with it tomorrow.
OK, I will try the link on the computer at work tomorrow. Now I have to print out all of this correspondence for review over the weekend. Fun, fun! I hope you like your job because I am sure I would not!
Nice talking to you. I truly apprecaite your input and advice.
